Media & Communications Coordinator
Kara West is Blight Rayner’s Media and Communications Coordinator.
Kara worked directly with Michael Rayner at Cox Rayner Architects for three years before joining Blight Rayner in 2016.
Initially working in graphic design, Kara’s skills were such that she was appointed to manage the development of the national Cox Architecture website, maintain their social media channels, and coordinate Cox Rayner’s project submissions.
In addition, she was a valuable member of the Cox Rayner graphics team for competition-winning architecture projects and for university and urban renewal master plans. Examples of her graphic design work include Workplace Strategy booklets for Tatts Group, the Queensland Cultural Precinct Master Plan, a heritage signage display at the Gold Coast Aquatic Centre, maintenance of the JCU Townsville Campus Master Plan website, and signage for the KS1 Kings Square office building in Perth.
Previously, Kara has worked as a graphic and web designer and also in business operations at the head office of a large national consultative sales organisation.
I’m all about communication, both as a person and graphically. I enjoy devising different and innovative means of communication that enhance the understanding of architectural or urban design intent, whether with the client, consultants or wider community.
